Bookings for tables up to 6 people and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier
Table sizes indoors cannot exceed 6 people and must be from an extended household (children under 11 can be in addition to this number). An extended household can be made up of 4 households joining together. Tables of 6 are available to book through our online calendar. If you're booking with children under 11 making your table exceed 6 people, please give us call.
Both customers and crew are now required to wear a face mask when entering, leaving and moving around the pub. Masks can be removed while seated at tables.
We also need to have you fed and watered by 10pm. However if you fancy a tipple to take away with you, we’ll be offering some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home.
Thank you for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.
You will find our pub down a long sweeping drive with majestic trees, overlooking a small lake surrounded by hills and hollows. We have plenty of picnic benches on the lawn and parasoled terraces to enjoy the beautiful views and gardens, dining or drinking al fresco.
Inside it's just as lovely - a 16th Century inglenook fireplace, nooks and crannies everywhere and history seeping through its veins.
It's a gorgeous environment to dine in, from our menus that are created daily from fresh, local produce, dreamt up by our talented team of chefs who cater for lighter appetites as well as those wanting hearty British pub classics. Equally it's a great drinking environment in our bar areas that offer a haven for dogs and their owners who love to try a myriad of fine whiskies, gins and real ales
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
